Having your website hosted with the right hosting provider and in the right environment is critical for all businesses.
Choosing your hosting provider should not be taken lightly. In fact, choosing the company that hosts your website is as important as choosing the company that develops your website. Businesses and organisations can sometimes overspend on the development and design of their site and don’t set aside a realistic budget for hosting.
A website that loads slowly can have a negative impact on the brand and its reputation. Your visitors will not want to wait for a page to load and inevitably they will end up leaving the site. The result is that you could potentially lose an enquiry, lose an order or damage your reputation. Having worked hard developing your brand and spending money on the development of your site, is this what you want?
Spikes in traffic can seriously affect the performance of a website. These spikes in traffic can occur for a number of reasons, during holiday periods, business events or marketing trends are just a few of the potential times that traffic can spike. Because of this, It is important that your installation is set up correctly so if large volumes of visitors arrive at your website your hosting environment has the power and capacity to handle the surge in traffic.
If the server which hosts your website cannot handle this traffic then what will happen is your website will either crash or the pages will load very slowly, again having a negative impact. If this is someone’s first visit are they likely to return or recommend your site to someone?
Our expert deployment service will ensure that your website installation is set up correctly and can meet all your objectives. Above all, we can keep the potentially stressful deployment process as seamless and worry-free as possible, thanks to the Ixis team's sophisticated managed version control service for deployment.
Our hosting service helps users to advance quickly and simplify tasks such as user acceptance testing. We can deliver custom deployments and have the ability to automatically make multi-branch deployment as simple as a single Git command.
In theory, you can host your website yourselves. However, expert advice and assistance is advisable, because there's an ongoing need too:
- Monitor your software installation, and react to alerts 24/7
- Manage the setup to enforce a repeatable environment and facilitate auditing
- Manage backups and disaster recovery strategies
- Provide a deployment system, implement release management and manage multiple environments
Ixis provides all of the above as standard. We can provide a fully managed cloud hosting platform as a core service, backed by our team's experience and expertise.
